Song Lyrics

[Spoken]
Well I'm goin' home

Goin’ home, goin’ home, goin’ home
If I never, never see you anymore
I’m goin’ home, goin’ home, goin’ home
I’ll meet you on that other shore

I’ve got his word, got his …, got his word
If I never, never see you anymore
Got his word, got his word, got his word
I’ll meet you on that other shore

I have a right, have a right, have a right
If I never, never see you anymore
I have a right, have a right have a right
I’ll meet you on that other shore

Told him here my hand, here my hand, here my hand
If I never, never see you anymore
Here my hand, here my hand, here my hand
I’ll meet you on that other shore

Take a stand, take a stand, take a stand
If I never, never see you anymore
Take a stand, take a stand, take a stand
I’ll meet you on that kingdom shore

I’m satisfied, satisfied, satisfied
If I never, never see you anymore
I’m satisfied, satisfied, satisfied
I’ll meet you on that other shore

I have a right, have a right, have a right
If I never, never see you anymore
I have a right, have a right, have a right
I’ll meet you on that other shore

Yes fare ye well, fare ye well, fare ye well
If I never, never see you anymore
Fare ye well, fare ye well, fare ye well
I’ll meet you on that other shore

I’ve been redeemed, been redeemed, been redeemed
If I never, never see you anymore
I’ve been redeemed, been redeemed, been redeemed
I’ll meet you on that other shore
